I like having ingredients on hand that make dinner quick and easy- for example: Ingredients and recipes with 3 simple steps, simple ingredients and about 15 minutes, and you have dinner on the table. With schedules like ours, this makes my life a lot easier. A family favorite in our house is stuffed peppers… but it can take a while to cook if we don’t have leftover rice and/or ground beef. These Sloppy Joes Stuffed Peppers pair two of our family favorites in one dish!
Sweet & Smoky Sloppy Joes Skillet Sauce can be made into Sloppy Joes the traditional way, with sandwich buns. With 1 lb of ground beef (or turkey if you prefer, even meatless crumbles for the vegetarian in your family), and the buns, you can have Sloppy Joes on the table in about 15 minutes. Maybe a few less. Brown the meat, drain it, add Skillet Sauce, boil 1 minute and voila! Serve it on the bun. Add some veggies on the side and you’ve got dinner.
You can also do a variation of the Sloppy Joes, which I did- my family LOVES stuffed peppers.We also love Sloppy Joes. With a few minutes extra of cook time, I was able to make Stuffed Peppers from the Sloppy Joes.
